The US LEND-LEASE act, enacted March 11, 1941 was a program under which the United States supplied Great Britain, the USSR, Republic of China, Free France, and other Allied nations with materiel between 1941 and August 1945.

It was signed into law on March 11, 1941, a year and a half after the outbreak of World War II in Europe in September 1939. This was nine months before the U.S. entered the war in December 1941.

Formally titled An Act to Further Promote the Defense of the United States, the Act effectively ended the United States' pretense of neutrality.

All Savage-Stevens lend-lease items were made the Chicopee Falls, Mass. factory between 1941 and 1942

This "Action Wrap" was designed to cover & protect the trigger and bolt mechanisms & magazine of the Short Magazine Lee Enfield .303 Rifle or "SMLE" Ex Military STORES this example has never graced an actual rifle so has NO wear NO damage just some anticipated age degradation & di9scolouratio0n due to it's 70-odd YEARS of age

ORIGINAL snap-domes and leather tie thong

The Savage Arms Company is a firearms manufacturing company based in Westfield, Massachusetts. The company makes a variety of rimfire and centerfire rifles, as well as marketing the Stevens single-shot rifles and shotguns. They may be best-known for the Model 99 hammerless lever-action rifle, no longer in production, and the very popular .300 Savage sporting cartridge, which was the parent case for the .308 Winchester cartridge.

History

Savage Arms was founded in 1894 by Arthur Savage in Utica, New York. Within 20 years they were producing rifles, handguns, and ammunition. Savage merged with the Driggs-Seabury Ordnance Company during World War I and produced Lewis machine guns. In 1920 Savage bought Stevens Arms. In 1939, Savage introduced the Model 24 double rifle (a configuration uncommon in the U.S.), which sold over a million copies.

During World War II, Savage turned again to military production, making heavy munition. After the war it produced the first motorized lawnmower.

The company was run by a variety of owners from the 1960s to the 1980s. Savage eventually ran into financial trouble in 1988 and filed for bankruptcy protection. Production was then reduced to the basic Model 110 bolt-action rifle.

A turn-around began in 1995 with the company returning to private ownership, led by Ronald Coburn, previously of Smith & Wesson. Today the company produces a wide variety of firearms and has a reputation for producing accurate, inexpensive rifles. Some of their recent success can be attributed to their development in 2002 of a factory-installed, safe, user-adjustable trigger, called the AccuTrigger. The company recently launched AccuStock an aluminum stock embedded rail system to further enhance action stability and accuracy. This new technology is now available on several of their models.

Savage was awarded the Manufacturer of the Year by the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence in 2003.

The Savage 93R17 BTVS was awarded the "Best New Rifle" in the "Best of the Best" presentation by Shooting Times, Sporting Gun, and Shooting Gazette magazines May 15, 2007 at the E. J. Churchill Shooting School in the U.K

Ron Coburn, chairman and CEO of Savage Sports Corporation was honored by SHOT Business Magazine and Time4Media outdoor media group as their "2007 Man of the Year". The award cites Mr. Coburn's dedication and contribution to the outdoor and firearm industry.

DATED 1942 manufactured by the Savage Arms Company as part of the WW2 Lend/Lease agreement
